Chapter 481. At the Hour of Your Death
“Beloved sons, today you are gathered together in prayer, as you call to mind your brothers who have gone before you in the sign of faith and are now sleeping the sleep of peace.
How great is the number of my beloved ones and children consecrated to my Immaculate Heart, who have now entered into the repose of the Lord!
Many of them are sharing in the fullness of joy, in the perfect possession of God and, together with the angelic cohorts, are lights which shine in the eternal blessedness of paradise.
Many are in purgatory, with the certainty of having been saved for ever, although still in the suffering of purification, because their possession of God is not yet full and perfect.
Today I want to tell you that these brothers of yours are especially close to you and form the most precious part of my victorious cohort. I have but one single cohort, just as my Church is one and one alone, united in the joyous experience of the communion of saints.
The saints intercede for you, light up your path, assist you with their most pure love, defend you from the subtle snares which my Adversary sets for you, and anxiously await the moment of your meeting.
The souls who are being purified pray for you, offer their sufferings for your well-being and, through your prayers, they are assisted in being set free from those human imperfections which prevent them from entering into the eternal joy of paradise.
Those saints who, while on earth, had lived the consecration to my Immaculate Heart, making up a crown of love to alleviate the sorrows of your heavenly Mother, form here above my most beautiful crown of glory.
They are close to my throne and follow your heavenly Mother wherever she goes.
Those souls in purgatory who, while on earth, had formed part of my cohort, now enjoy a special union with me, feel in a special way my presence which sweetens the bitterness of their suffering, and shortens the time of their purification. And it is I myself who go to receive these souls into my arms, that I may lead them into the incomparable light of paradise.
Thus I am always close to all of you, my beloved ones and children consecrated to my Heart, during your painful earthly pilgrimage, but I am close to you in a most special way at the hour of your death. How many times, as you recite the holy rosary, have you repeated this prayer to me: ‘Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death!’ This is an invocation which I listen to with great joy, and it is always heard by me. If, as Mother, I am close to each one of my children at the hour of death, I am especially close to you who, through your consecration, have always lived in the secure refuge of my Immaculate Heart.
At the hour of your death, I am close to you, with the splendor of my glorified body, I receive your souls into my motherly arms, and I bring them before my Son Jesus, for his particular judgment. Think of how joyful must be the meeting of Jesus with those souls who are presented to Him by his very own Mother! This is because I cover them with my beauty, I give them the perfume of my holiness, the innocence of my purity, the white robe of my charity and, where there remains some stain, I run my motherly hand over it to wipe it away and to give you that brightness which makes it possible for you to enter into the eternal happiness of paradise.
Blessed are those who die close to your heavenly Mother. Yes, blessed, because they die in the Lord, they will find rest from their labors, and their good deeds will follow them.
My beloved ones and children consecrated to my Immaculate Heart, today I invite you to enter into a great intimacy with me during your life, if you wish to experience the great joy of seeing me close to you and of welcoming your souls into my motherly arms, at the hour of your death.”
If you are concerned if you should read this, no it is not officially sanctioned by the Church, it was not Our Lady plan, she just wanted a Holy spirit to run through the Church. Priest did not so much take this group to heart, but huge numbers of laity have lead Priest to it and they have changed their ways of living. Check it out if you are worried. I can’t afford to lead you astray. It was approved by St Pope John Paul II, he told Father Gobbi to have it printed and God would decide through it’s works.
